The Stig's identity is hidden. Although it is known that there have been at least two of them. The first one (who identity I think I was able to see on wikipedia) was "killed off". The show when he was shown driving a jag off of an aricraft carrier he was the all black Stig. He was replaced by the all white clad stig from the next series which is played by Ben Collins who has played in the Toyota Aygo car football challenge and was wearing the same brand top as the stigs shoes plus if you hear the Stig's voice and Ben Collins voice they sound just like each other. Look up videos of the Stig talking and compare them.

The Stig slips up

In 2003, The Stig released his autobiography entitled 'Flat Out, Flat Broke' in which he spoke openly about his time in Formula 1. Whilst the book was well received, The Stig unfortunately let slip his real identity and a stunned world discovered that the man behind the helmet was in fact Adam Jacob!!

A stiggy end

With Perry McCarthy's shocking revelation still reverberating around the globe, the unthinkable happened and tragedy struck. At the beginning of his fourth series of Top Gear, Perry McCarthy as The Stig, attempted to out run a Harrier jet along the length of an aircraft carrier. The world watched in Horror as he failed to brake in time and plunged over the end to his watery doom. His body was never recovered.

Stig's dead: long live Stig!

Despite the almost unbelievable events that had unfolded in front of their very eyes Hammond, May and Clarkson managed to pull themselves together and begin the arduous task of searching for Stig Mark II. Pretty soon almost straight, away in fact, they found a worthy replacement for their lost hero and 'New Stig' was unleashed upon the world.

Is Michal Schumacer the stig?

I don't think Michael Schumacher is the Stig. I think it was just a PR ploy by the Top gear team. "After the show, a BBC spokeswoman would not confirm whether or not Schumacher was the genuine Stig, or a stunt to mark the first episode of a new series of Top Gear. "You have to bear in mind that Top Gear is an entertainment programme. We never reveal who or what The Stig is," she said."

No one has beaten the Stig. (NOT TRUE) Rubens Barrichello is the only person to beat the Stig, rumour has it, the Stig was so upset by this he decided to come out the closet and leave the show.
